    However and how.

    Hello,

    I would like to ask my first question for today. :)

    How fast can you type? (It is correct)

    But,

    1) Tell me. How could you drive this car so fast?

    2) Actually, I can't know about how you can drive this car fast.

    Are they correct? Can we use 'adjective' and 'adverb' apart from 'how'?

    Thanks

    Re: However and how.

    How fast can you type?

    1a) Tell me. How could you drive this car so fast?
    1b) Tell me how you could drive this car so fast.


    #1a and 1b are both acceptable. #1c is also acceptable though it has a different meaning:

    1c) Tell me how fast you could drive this car.


    2) Actually, I can't know about how you can drive this car fast.
    I am not sure what you mean here. These are possiblities:
    I don't know how fast you can drive this car.
    I don't know how you can drive this car so fast.
    I don't know anything about driving this car fast.
